Quick Overview

The Stellaris console command random_ruler is used to replace the current ruler of your empire with a new one, the characteristics of whom are randomly determined at the time of execution.

In-Depth Description

In Stellaris, the random_ruler command replaces your existing empire ruler with a new, randomly generated one.

This command doesn't require any additional parameters, you only type random_ruler into the console.

This command doesn't just change the ruler's name, age, or species; it generates a completely new ruler, including new traits and skills which might be better or worse than the ones of the previous ruler.

This command is useful when the current ruler doesn't suit the player's strategy or isn't performing well due to negative traits or low skills. It's like a reshuffle for the leadership of your empire.

How to Open the Command Console

In Stellaris, cheats are executed from the command console, a text box that you type commands into.

To open the command console press the ~(tilde) key, which is typically located under ESC (escape).

If your keyboard does not have that key, or pressing ~ does not work, try the following keys:

  • ~
  • SHIFT + 2
  • SHIFT + 3
  • ALT + 2 + 1

Type your command into the console, and then press ENTER .
